Have a look at the Towbars we offer below:-
Traditionally used in the UK the Flange towbar is the most commonly used type of towbar in Britain.
Used for all serious forms of towing and generally the most cost effective option. A 50mm towball is bolted to a two or four hole flange plate (vehicle dependant).
Flange towbars are usually permanently fixed to the vehicle with the towing electrics also mounted to the flange plate together with the towball.
The fitting of a 25mm spacer so that accessories such as a towbar mounted cycle carrier can be used.
Mainly used in the rest of Europe and slimmer than a flange bar, detachable towbar systems have become increasingly popular as they have the added benefit of not being on the vehicle when not required
The detachable towbar is designed for Individual motorists that have an eye for detail. The rear design of the vehicle remains intact as the ball is detachable usually by a quick release lever system so that none of the towbar is on show from the rear of the vehicle. The detachable ball systems are safe, reliable and easy to use and the number plate always remains visible.
Swan Neck Towbars
The Swan Neck towbar was first manufactured over 30 years ago, in close collaboration with all the major car manufacturers and is the most common type of towbar used across Europe.
It has a slimmer profile than a flange towbar, and is compatible with a wide range of vehicles.
The swan neck comes from under the bumper and can either be welded to the towbar or can be bolted on. The electric's are normally mounted under the bumper not to the side of the ball such as it is for the flange type mounting.
